(April 16, 2017 – Easter) You’d never suspect that a cocoon would hold a butterfly, and yo would certainly never suspect that a tomb might hold a risen Savior. Yet, God is full of surprises, and the Easter season beckons us to break free from all that confines us, spread our wings, and fly! What transformed beauty might we see– might we be– when we emerge? (John 20:1-18)

Sermon: Empty Tomb; So What?

picture for easter e weekly“Empty Tomb; So What?”

(April 20, 2014, Easter Sunday) Easter brings us to the the greatest miracle and mystery of the Christian faith, but what’s it all about? What happens *after* the empty tomb to change our lives? God’s salvation is still happening, not accomplished all at once. Instead, we are invited into the ongoing work of God. (Matthew 28:1-10, Luke 24:1-12)

Easter Sunday, complete with the interruption object lesson from my son William.
